A health scare, but was being paranoid….

Felt something not right with myself and got a bit concerned. Decided to seek specialist help after thinking about it for a week. In the end, it was just paranoia and nothing was wrong. Goes to show that perspective in life changes with age. After a certain age, you will start to feel about end of life and what should be done before that end of life happens. Some will make sure that their loved ones will be financially protected even after they are gone. Others will just choose to love like today is their last day and not think much about tomorrow. Everything is all subjective and everyone has their own rights to their decisions. Ultimately, they are the ones who need to love through that decision and take responsibility for it whether they want to or not.

Following the consult and reassurance, decide to treat myself to a nice simple meal although it was quite expensive. But I thought it was worth a while cos it is to show me that I am still relatively healthy and still have the chance to build my wealth. Therefore decided to explore more into investment strategies in preparation for the future. In the meantime, will he trying to keep healthy as well.

A shocking event amidst the pandemic

Today Singapore recorded itโ€™s highest community COVID-19 infection since Aug 10 2020. However, as shocking as it is, another news came as a even bigger shock to the students of a secondary school. As investigation are ongoing and news is being circulated to the general public, there will understandably be rumours and speculations about how could such an event occur in such a safe country. Well, nothing is impossible, but speculation does not help to allay any fears in the public. It will be best to let the authorities conduct the necessary investigations and brief the public when the time comes. I do agree with the news outlet that respect should be given to both sides and their families. There is already ongoing racism that has been happening in the recent years due to the pandemic and the last thing is to further instil more fear or even hatred in the community.

Everyone needs to play a role to help stem fear-mongering among certain groups of the public. Time will let us know more and rushing to conclusions does not help in any way.

A dose of healthy… Maybe not

Decided to try out a new dish from this place that serves everything will salmon. Thought was going on a healthy lunch but the sauce was too much and made the dish tasted quite salty and spicy. Couldn’t taste the raw salmon in the end. Better to have the aloha poke version than this bibimbap. But overall a place worth a try although not often as the price is quite expensive. It seems like healthy food is always going to be more expensive probably due to the raw food cost and the marketing involved to attract customers. It’s not like the $4 economic rice which attracts long queues during peak meal times. Probably worth considering a healthy economoc rice with partnership with the organisation to earn rebates and rewards.

Food to quench the misery?

Had a wonderful meal to try and weed the feeling of helplessness. Although not cheap, the meal was quite satisfying and managed to lift the mood a bit. Goes to show that I am probably belong to the live to eat party. Still no matter how good the food, once it’s gone it’s gone. The only way to bring it back is to order another one. However, you can’t do that with life. You only have one chance. Would you go all out and risk everything just to tell yourself, “At least I tried” but fail miserably or would you stay in your comfort zone and not try at all. People say you should not live with regret but what if the “try” paid a much a higher price than you expected?

There is no right or wrong to this. But I feel there is a lot of things that needs to be considered. The “what-ifs” are always the fear that prevents people from trying. Sometimes, failure does not only impact the individual but also the ones around them. But you never know until you try, but should you?

Reflection on life.

Decided to go for an early morning walk in an attempt to catch the sunrise on this big day. Little did u realise that the weather forecast was cloudy the entire day and could barely catch a glimpse of the sunlight.

Looking at the the weather made me realise it’s so closely reflective of my life at the moment. Not sure how many people have this same feeling. But I feel as though despite living for the past decades, it seems like I am still searching for what I want in life. There is no passion at the workplace even after changing multiple jobs. It is really difficult to find that one job that really makes you look forward to going work everyday. Currently, work is more for survival, getting the salary to survive to the next salary payout. People say it’s very seldom to find that job that you really yearn for and majority of us are just working for the sake of providing food on the table. Is it really that hard? Or is it just that I’m not willing to take the leap with fear of losing everything? Or is it just a lazy of an excuse?

Still is better?

Was at this place for the Nth time since it opened but still managed to capture different things about the place. Had a chance to catch the vortex fountain performance which was really amazing although was splashed with water. Was taking a video but decided to take some stills and I think it’s much better.

Sometimes, it’s better to stop a while and enjoy the moment rather than just keep moving aimlessly. Just a realisation.

Amazing feat amazing costs

Managed to visit this new iconic building in Singapore that was recently opened. This building, situated next to the airport is meant to push up Tourism and get visitors as well as locals to spend. Unlike other most other countries, Singapore Changi Airport is build more to resemble a huge shopping centre than an airport. Weekends means trips to the airport with a huge space to roam about in cramped Singapore. At 1.3billion

dollars, it shows how much the airport authorities are willing to pay and how confident they are. With another terminal coming up and another dedicated mass rapid transport, things are sure to get better with years to come. Have you been there yet?

Journey to the West

Just visited this newly opened park in the west of Singapore. It is really amazing work landscape architects and landscapers have done to this place. It brings it totally new class of nature into this huge expanse. Super huge crowds as usual when something new opens in Singapore. But with the correct angle I suppose it’s possible to capture an amazing shot. ๐Ÿ˜

2019,still feels like any other year

Every beginning of the year, everyone will make resolutions and then review them at the end of year. I tried to do this 10 years ago but I just gave up and everything seems to repeat itself. Nothing has changed much in the last 10 years. In fact, it seems like it has been getting harder to get by as each year progresses. Maybe it’s all about the economy, political unrest and natural disasters that everyone has been talking about. But I think it’s still all in the mind. If you don’t work hard then nothing will come to you. I suppose I have not worked hard enough. People also say that the kind will be rewarded. I don’t think I have done any misdeeds but I suppose that I have not been kind enough. Another year and I am still looking for the light at the end of the tunnel. Maybe I am not looking hard enough. Sigh…

Confused and stressful week.

Went through a series of events which left me quite confused and stressed this week. Was presented with 2 business opportunities to join as partners at two different startups. Wondering if I should take it cos I’m not sure of I’m up to it and if I can handle it. Really going into the most uncomfortable zone. Decided to this weekend to ponder over it. Not sure if how other will handle this situation. Opportunities are not easy to come by startups are very challenging if you’re really just starting up. Still have not come to a concrete decision but just taking this time to chill at one of my favourite old time cafe. How’s your week been like?
